Summary
Slavoj Zizek's masterwork on the Hegelian legacy. Today, as global capitalism comes apart at the seams, we are entering a new transition. In Less Than Nothing, Zizek argues that it is imperative that we not simply return to Hegel but that we repeat and exceed his triumphs, overcoming his limitations by being even more Hegelian than the master himself. Such an approach not only enables Zizek to diagnose our present condition, but also to engage in a critical dialogue with the key strands of contemporary thought: Heidegger, Badiou, speculative realism, quantum physics and cognitive sciences. Modernity will begin and end with Hegel. (P. [2] of cover)
Summary
Full of his customary controversial dynamism and rhetorical onslaught, Zizek's (sociology, U. of Ljubljana) latest work brings all of his previous work on cultural theory home to roost in a gargantuan examination of Hegel and his enduring influence. Arguing that Hegel's ideas should be embraced, embodied and exaggerated to understand and make sense of modern life and the current unrest and revolutionary impulses in the world, the author draws on a dizzying set of cultural data to serve as examples of and devices to explain Hegel's brilliance and relevance as a framework to understand the world.
